12 Days of Christmas
Day 4 – Party Time
I LOVE throwing a party! Tis the season for parties and gatherings so I have answered some common party dilemmas……..
Evite vs Paper Invitations
It’s completely acceptable in our world of convenience and social media to send a paperless invitation for a casual party. It’s easy and quick for the host and it’s simple and fast as a guest to RSVP and correspond with the host. Obviously you can NEVER go wrong with sending a formal invitation if you wish. A more formal invitation is necessary for a formal party.
Family Style vs Plated Dinner
This is similar to the Invitations debate. If you’re throwing a formal party with a small guest list then have a formal dinner. If you’re throwing a less formal party and want a more interactive and casual feel have appetizers or a full dinner served family style. This allows the host to relax and enjoy the party too!
Christmas Music vs Regular Music
I love both! I think that a great playlist that incorporates mostly Christmas music but adds a few classic songs that everyone loves is the best playlist.
Fancy vs Casual
I love a fancy party but I ALWAYS have more fun at a casual party during the holidays! When I throw a party I like to have a casual and comfortable atmosphere mixed with beautiful fancy touches. I still have beautiful flowers, great food, perfectly appointed decor but without the stuffiness of a formal gathering. Having fun is all that matters!
No matter what your party style is the season is for enjoying your family and friends! Check back for more of my tips for celebrating the holiday’s well!
